Apply for help for young adults
Young adults receive suitable and necessary help if and as long as their personality development does not guarantee a self-determined, responsible and independent way of life. As a rule, assistance is only granted until the young person reaches the age of 21; in justified individual cases, it is to be continued for a limited period of time beyond this age. Termination of assistance does not preclude the granting or continuation of assistance.
Assistance for young adults is possible as assistance for young adults, provided that it is suitable for young adults, whereby the young adult takes the place of the person with custody or the child or young person.
